The M22 Stella is the newest, most advanced, and powerful modular multi-application platform by Lumenis. It contains IPL and ResurFX. Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a type of light therapy used to treat a wide range of skin conditions such as age spots, sun damage, freckles, uneven skin tone, port wine stains, hemangioma, telangiectasia, venous malformation, birth marks, acne and rosacea. M22 Stella IPL with Optimal Pulse Technology (OPT) can control pulse shape by equalizing energy distribution over the entire pulse or sequential pulses and produce gentler, more comfortable, patient-friendly procedures, with lower effective fluences, high peak power, shorter pulses. Advanced OPT (AOPT) will also allow determining the specific fluence per sub-pulse when using multiple sequential pulsing, for fine-tuned treatment settings. During the treatment, a handheld device is passed across the skin’s surface delivering pulses of broad-spectrum, polychromatic, high intensity light to penetrate below the skin’s surface. For any unwanted pigment (age spots, freckles, etc.), IPL works by breaking up the melanin in the dermis which is the cause of these pigmentations. For vascularity, IPL targets the enlarged or tortuous capillaries and destroys them. IPL is also ideal for candidates who are looking to even their skin tone, reduce acne or rosacea, or in need of a refresher for their skin.
